Not Too Young

Lord Chesterton once said, “I believe in bedside repentance, but I do not want to depend upon it.” During a serious illness a person’s mind does not function normally. Getting right with God is something one should do in the bloom of health. However, as far as the Lord is concerned, “His ear is not heavy that He cannot hear, nor His arm shortened that He cannot save.” He loves us equally, in sickness or in health; while we are living, or while we are dying. In my experience, I have not known of too many people who found Christ on their deathbed. When we come to Christ in our youth, a life is saved. When we come in old age, a soul is salvaged and life eternal is assured; but the opportunity to live a life for Christ has been lost.

Prayer for the day

Lord God, burden my heart to reach out to the young persons starting their adventure in life—and the old persons dreading the end of their journey. Let me tell them the message of Your saving love.

    Yes, Lord, your saving love encompasses all men. It pleases you, that we cry out in lamentation for your merciful love. This proves that we do not rely on our own power but in yours alone, O God. Help us miserable sinners for without your help we are lost. Thank you, Lord, in the Name of Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer. Amen.

    Receive the greatest gift anyone could ever receive, Jesus Christ. Receive Him into your heart now, not tomorrow, exchange the cheap temporary things of the world for the greatest riches a person could receive, a gift that lasts for eternity, Jesus the Son of God.

    The end-of-life can occur at any moment, for anyone. if you do not know Christ as your Savior, don’t wait another moment. it may be too late. Eternity is a long time.
